Matt Kerr was a curious boy, described by his parents as inquisitive and philosophical. Even at a young age, he loved taking things apart to learn how to put them back together. This is what led him to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering. After receiving his diploma in 2006, Matt went on to work as an Electrical Engineer for a solar company. Five years later, he received a promotion to Chief Engineering Officer. In 2018, however, Matt left to start his own appliance repair company in Edmonton. After over five years in the business, Matt noticed that a lot of his clients had appliance problems they could easily repair themselves – but didn’t know how to. To that end, he built the Appliance Geeked website to share his technical knowledge and help homeowners tackle their appliance repairs themselves and ultimately, save up on professional repair fees.

Today, he has more than 30 years of appliance repair to his name, as well as several decades of experience in everything from electrical down to carpentry work. Regularly in demand, he’s most often out in the field but occasionally takes time to write pieces for us and help out our readers the way he does his clients.
